I didn't know that. So how does it work, that I'm able to set cmd.exe window
title with ANSI escape sequences bellow?
It sets cmd.exe window title to the current working directory in bash. Also
colors in bash are set by ANSI escape sequences.
Sorry for maybe stupid questions, but I'm web applications developer not
system developer. I don't know how that things work.

Actually I don't want Cygwin to send ANSI escape sequences, I just would
like to use Cygwin for doing my job, it's really great, but this screen
crippling makes it really hard. I'm ready to help as much as I can, but I
just need your help.
Have a nice day.
